KELO TV recently aired a story on one of the bills I am sponsoring this session. I am the prime sponsor of Senate Bill 154 which strengthens our mandatory reporting statutes pertaining to child abuse and neglect situations. I serve on a Court Improvement Committee in South Dakota and worked with members of the committee to craft the legislation.
Amy Benda, Executive Director of the CASA program in Sioux Falls, has been a huge advocate for SB 154′s passage. Amy is interviewed in the KELO TV story and does a great job articulating the issue!
